International Student Network (ISN)

Although obstacles might occur studying abroad is said to be one of the most amazing experiences in a lifetime.

To help international students navigate through their stay in St. Pölten and make this time of their lives even more special, the International Student Network is here for them in any situation. Whether they need support during their arrival or at any time during their stay, the ISN team is always happy to help.

What does ISN do?

The International Student Network consists of the ISN Board and ISN Buddies which both play a significant role in supporting the international students. Moreover, all incoming students automatically become members of the ISN upon their arrival and international degree-seeking students may also benefit from an international student membership in the ISN to help them in the onboarding process during their first semester in Austria. The main goal is to organise events, trips and informal get-togethers to help international students not only to get to know each other better but to also to experience the Austrian way of life.

The Buddy Network provides individual support and guidance for incoming students. The buddies, who are all studying at the UAS St. Pölten and participate in this programme on a voluntary basis, are allocated to an incoming student at the beginning of every semester and are able to connect with them on a more personal level as they offer personal help according to the needs of the exchange students.

The ISN St. Pölten is responsible for supporting international students and to ensure their social well-being during their stay in Austria.
